We paid drive and arrive late morning on Friday to the Portugise settlement. Nothing much to see. Square with shops have been closed so it was museum. Waiste of time.

The place is rather far from town and the only attraction is that the place is situated just in front of the sea. I must say the sea view looks nice and there are about 10 Portuguese theme type of seafood restaurants. Please be mindful...More

The main attraction is the authentic Portugese themed food (actually it's fusion mixed with local flavours). We arrived in time to take in the sunset, not spectacular but still a good view with the amber sun setting. We visited a few days before Christmas so...More

Good local seafood done the Kristang way with wonderful sea breeze while having our dinner. There are restaurants in a row facing the sea and a few more located a bit further away from this more popular first row. Food prices can be steep here...More

It is just a simple architecture for photo taking. Nothing much to take away with. We are here to learn about the history.

Years ago this was a nice serene place to enjoy the delicious seafood and the night breeze. Yet today, this place gives you a horrifying experience once you step out of your car from the parking space. There's about 10-15 people pouncing on you peddling...More
